Frances Aviva Blane
Paintings + Drawings 2000 – 2004
8 June – 17 July 2004
The vast vaulted basement, of the former slaughterhouse in St John Street, has been the setting for this solo show an ‘integrate’ installation of lights and paintings. Amongst a forest of cast iron pillars, dusty protruding pipes and electrical cables giving a feeling of decay and abandonment, hang Frances’s powerful paintings and drawings. The space is accentuated with appropriate lighting to emphasise the various textures of the walls and also to reflect the stressfulness perceived in Frances Blane’s work. This exhibition is part of the Clerkenwell Architecture Biennale in the summer of 2004.
